Excerpt from Message

Dear May- Marie and I went back to San Francisco yesterday and browsed around the stores and hotels, and chinatown. Ate a delicious chinese dinner at Cathay House there at Ald Sr. Mary's. The sanctuary was a bank y white lillies, certainly very beautiful. We made the trip on a "commuter train" my first experience with such. To Menlo this afternoon. Love Mary
